THE MYSTERIOUS TEXTURE OF SOIL
 

The adventure of painting by investigating textures started with the barks of trees and this time continued with the ground (that I step on.) A new world unfolded before me after noticing the crust of the earth. This awareness proved to be exciting and pleasurable. I was finding peace in the beige-brown tones and pastel colours of the land, its texture and various aspects were making me contemplate; it was as if I was being reborn again with new shapes and colours. I was trying to reach an entirety by connecting small and bigger pieces, as if I was making a puzzle. The works I was making on a canvas attached to a magnetic material provided the opportunity to do so. One can make a whole by gathering as many as pieces as one desires or changing their places and reform the entity whenever one wishes by changing their places yet again; so that the ever-changing nature of the Earth’s crust can be felt.

 

THE EARTH

What we step on every day,

What we do not look at enough,

What we look at but do not see,

I try to see.
